Left Foot Charley Blaufrankisch 2017
Blaufrankisch, also known as Lemberger or Blue Franc (a proprietary name), is best known for the lush red wines of Burgenland, in Austria. It has long made cameo appearances in New York and Washington states. This beauty from Michigan is silky and lithe, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blackberries, with just a hint of caraway spice (my identifier for the grape, this note can be overpowering if the grapes were underripe). If I can find more, it will be on my Thanksgiving table. ABV: 13 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue). Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's. Available in Maryland at 5 O'Clock Wine... Aug 17, 2018

University of Minnesota Extension's Master Gardener program.On one end of the tour, the Alexandria Golf Club accents its beautiful course with flowers and landscaping. Meanwhile in Farwell, Tara and Dennis Bitzan tend big country gardens and tuck flowers, birdhouses and wooden and iron items along a walking trail. Perry Evans specializes in cut flowers, while Country Blossom Farm grows apples and berries for market. Native plants dominate Bill and Jessie Blanchard's 1,300-square-foot garden."All of these natives were chosen because they were attractive to various pollinators," Bill Blanchard said.Each year, 300 or more people take the Tour of Gardens, Gaffaney said. Gardeners answer questions, and two master gardeners are always at every property.At just a third of the way into the growing season, the gardens still have plenty to offer."Things have grown so much in the last week, I'm amazed," she added.The tour runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tour participants visit the gardens in the order they wish, paying $5 at the first garden they visit.

These miniature flowers are perfect for small spaces (and budgets)
May.Last week, I stopped by the Alexandria garden of Karen Cogar, president of the Washington Daffodil Society, to see some of the “minis” in action. In an area of only eight feet by six feet, she was growing approximately 200 varieties of miniature daffodils. The term applies to those that grow under six inches and are on an ordained American Daffodil Society list, but many exquisite, small (if taller) daffodils are found outside those boundaries as well. Most varieties of triandrus, jonquilla and cyclamineus daffodils fit the bill.When I arrived at Cogar’s, she had 20 or so varieties of minis that she had collected to show me. It was hard to pick a favorite. Angel’s Breath had three descending blooms on its single stem, all a soft lemon yellow and about an inch and a half across. Even after a few days in a vase, the fragrance was strong and spicy. Mitzy is a white-flowering cyclamineus type with its petals swept back against an unusually long and slender corona.You don’t have to have a balcony of pots for these smaller daffodils. Cogar led me through her woodland garden, where Minnow and Pacific Coast were flowering with hellebores and Virginia bluebells. Closer in appearance to species daffodils, they look at home in a woodland garden. Find a spot on the edge of the woods — they need sunlight to regenerate — and plant as many as you can. Heath, co-founder of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs, suggests you plant at least 10 bulbs for an effect. “Ten makes a nice big clump, eight to 12 inches in diameter,” he said.I asked Heath to recommend three of his varieties for novices. He suggested Baby Boomer, a dwarf jonquil with loads of flowers and fragrance, and clusters of buttery yellow blooms; Tiny Bubbles, a short, nodding golden bloomer with petals that are swept back a little; and Snow Baby, a miniature trumpet growing to 10 inches with creamy white cups. I asked about powerfully fragrant varieties, and in addition to Baby Boomer, he recommended Baby Moon, a canary yellow jonquilla, and a variety named Canaliculatus, which is similar to Minnow but with more flowers and cups a stronger yellow.Cogar travels to shows across the eastern United States at this time of year — they start in the South and move northward with the growing season — and is heartened when she sees younger people growing and showing. “Now if we could get Taylor Swift to grow daffodils, the whole world would grow them,” she said.
